    there was one person who went around smearing feces on the cave wall to make sure everyone understands that it's a natural substance and a part of our lives.

      I was going to write that that 'person' wouldn't have lasted long in my cave, but then I reminded myself that one of my toddlers spent many a nap time painting his signature on the bed room walls, and I never kicked him out, so yes, an alternative view must be tolerated from time to time, however unpleasant it might seem at the time.

      Sometimes, however, the better part of valor is knowing when to fight or flee.  When one senses that an unpleasantry will not be tolerated in a highly emotional state of reverence, then get the heck out of there fast.
